The Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem is the only museum in the world dedicated to the history of the Ancient Near East from a biblical perspective. The permanent exhibition displays an extraordinary collection of ancient art and archaeology tracing the roots of monotheism from the dawn of civilization to early Christianity.
Museum founder, Dr. Elie Borowski, (1913-2003) devoted over five decades to assembling a priceless collection of artifacts which provide the core exhibition of the Museum. His dream was to create a universal institution where people of all faiths would come to learn about biblical history.
The BLMJ opened in May 1992 and has since earned international acclaim as a universal center for cultural and educational programming. It leads innovative educational programs for students, presents weekly lectures, and offers a variety of courses for adults. The Museum is a vibrant cultural institution offering creative programs for families and a rich array of activities throughout the year.
